Who shall don the 'C' for the Devils?

I'd give it to him just for the pornstache.

I'd give it to Elias, he has been an assistant forever and he has stated he wants to be a career Devil. But given he will but out for a while, I'd say Madden by default.

With Gomez and Pandolfo or Ralfalski if he stays.

Man, that's a pretty weak pornstache. Unless it was a Zorro porno.

John Madden.

Can you imagine Gomez as captain? I'd bug the dressing room to hear those pep talks. :)

Yes, but being a top player doesn't make you a captain.

Yashin was captain in Ottawa. And was useless in that role.

Captain is supposed to lead on AND off the ice. He's supposed to guage where the team is and motivate them from there. He's supposed to take an interest in the other players and make sure their head is in the game. He's supposed to rally the troops - keep them motivated when the team is tired and it would be so easy to coast.

Maybe Elias is that guy. I'd have little objection to him being captain. All I'm saying is that being a top player doesn't automatically make you captain material.

Madden or Elias... but I definitely think the other A should go to Rafalski if he stays. And, if not -- then Brylin is certainly next in line, in my book.

I agree about Madden 100% with Elias getting the A.

I love the Gomez comment, funniest thing I read in a while! :lol:

I will vote for Timex...he has worn that C before however during pre-season...he has been around for 3 Cups, never complains, does his job and knows when to say something in the locker room. I will go with #18 :)

ooh, low blow. :P

Yeah, I would have to say Madden gets the C. He leads by example, and with intensity. You can't ask for much more from a Captain.

too bad goalies can't be captains. Brodeur would have been an excellent captain

I am kind of glad that he can't be captain. I like my goalies concentrating 100% on the puck.

If that actually happened, I'd give it to Madden. He seems like a vocal kind of player and he works hard.

Honestly though, if you looked at your team's cap situation, there's a chance that all three defensemen could still be re-signed.

I can see Stevens taking a significant paycut (2 million) so that they can have a shot to bring back Niedermayer and Rafalski.

Theoretically you could name Brodeur unofficial captain. The C on the sweater is really just procedural.

I'd have to go with everyone else. Either Madden or Brylin for the C, the other of the two and Elias for the As.
